Our Declaration of a Consistent Ethic of Life

Kapatiran Party upholds human life in all its forms and stages. All are important. One aspect of human life affects another.

The precondition for sustaining a consistent ethic of life is a “respect life” attitude or atmosphere in society. Where human life is considered cheap and easily wasted, eventually nothing is held sacred, and all lives are in jeopardy.

A consistent ethic of life means being pro-life across the board – opposing abortion, artificial contraception, the death penalty, euthanasia, sports whose main aim is to inflict physical violence or harm on the opponent, torture to extract confession from an accused or a suspect, hazing, maltreatment of prisoners, pornography, prostitution, fraternity violence, the culture of guns, death and violence, vendettas, the arms race, poverty, corruption, and unsafe working conditions.

 

 

 

 

A consistent ethic of life should be the moral framework within which all issues in the political arena are to be addressed. The consequence of a consistent ethic of life is the provision of a standard to test public policy, party platform, and the postures of candidates for public office.

Finally, it would be well to remember James 2:10-11: “Whoever falls into sin on one point of the law, even though he keep the entire remainder, has become guilty on all counts. For he who said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’ also said, ‘You shall not kill.’ If therefore you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.”

 

 

On the Reproductive Health Bill

Section 12, Article II of the Philippines’ 1987 Constitution states: “The State shall…protect… the life of the unborn from conception.”

“Clearly, the abortifacient action inherent in certain contraceptives must be investigated and, if proven, the State must take appropriate measures in adherence to our Constitution,” Atty. James Imbong of St. Thomas More Society, Inc. Law Center said.
